IncobotulinumtoxinA Dosage

Before prescribing a specific dosage of incobotulinumtoxinA, your healthcare provider will take into consideration the condition being treated, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking. This medication comes as an injection that is given directly into the muscles that are causing the problems. This drug's effects are not permanent; you will need to receive injections periodically to maintain the beneficial effects.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of IncobotulinumtoxinA

  • The condition being treated
  • How you respond to incobotulinumtoxinA
  • Other medical conditions you have
  • Other medications you are taking.
 
As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
